We paid a visit to Overton High School and were BLOWN AWAY. Watch this video to hear a rap/poem that was performed for us! Student art matters. Memphis matters. Let’s elevate our city and celebrate our students together!
In 2020, we are spending a week traveling to inner city schools in Memphis encouraging them to write about the city they grew up in!
Here’s how it works:
– Students write a poem about what Memphis means to them and teachers vote for a school winner.
– The school winners are judged, and the top four move on to city-wide voting.
– The four overall winners record their poem with David Porter at Made In Memphis Music, and Creation Studios produces an inspired short film for each.
– Sponsors, Teachers, and Students come together for a red-carpet awards gala celebrating Memphis, meeting our poets, viewing the short-films, and announcing the winner!
